The deepest sorrow elicits the most beautiful music

With four meditations on death and parting, Vox Luminis and the instrumentalists of L'Acheron touch upon the heart of the Passion. From Jesus' last thoughts, to Mary's disconsolate words at the foot of the Cross, to Buxtehude's personal grief at the loss of his father. Kerll’s requiem also has personal intimacy: after a brilliant career in places such as Brussels, Munich and Vienna, he wrote it with his own death in mind and specifically asked for it to be performed at his own funeral.
